Jesus, in his heavenly glory

Representative Text

1 Jesus in His heav'nly glory,
sits with God upon the throne;
noun more to be forsaken,

2 Never more shall God, Jehovah,
smite the Shepherd with the sword;
ne'er again shall cruel sinners
set at nought our glorious Lord.

3 Dwelling in eternal sunshine

Jesus fills all heaven with incense
of HIs reconciling blood.

4 On His heart our names are graven,
on His shoulders we are borne;
of our God beloved in Jesus,
we can love Him in return.
